Tuesday is normally Mocha Moms day on Tell Me More, NPR's daily talk show with Michel Martin; it's as if The View were just about parenting, and just happened to be black. It's also the kind of chitchat that gets me thinking, "Come back, Brother Tavis, we need you!" and scrambling to change the radio to CSPAN.
Only today, it wasn't Mocha Moms, but "Mocha Dads." "In honor of Father's Day," the panel featured three dadbloggers-- Keith Morton of African American Dad, Jeff Steele of DC Urban Moms and Dads, and Jason Sperber of Rice Daddies [who's actually Japanese-American so technically, it's two mochas and an o-cha.]
Is it too audacious to hope that someday, dads will be included in parenting discussions the other 51 weeks of the year?
